Looking to the future

London has time and time again proved its resilience, whatever the economic context. While price corrections are forecast for 2023, JLL forecast London will see 13.9% cumulative growth 2023–2027 (average 2.6% per year).

Regeneration is a catalyst for house price growth and as a result we expect our area to outperform the London market. Property price growth in regeneration areas outperforms the wider market by an additional 3.1% per annum. Our local population is set to increase by 20% over the next ten years, to over 100,000 people.

A vibrant rental market

Located just 15 minutes from central London, unsurprisingly our rental market is buoyant. Average monthly rental prices have risen 18.2% in the last year, outpacing the wider London market. Indicative gross yields are attractive and price performance in the rental market is set to outpace the sales market in the coming years.

Close to 9 in 10 properties let are apartments, with our area offering a good mix of both new build and traditional. New build* apartments attract a price premium of 10%, the equivalent of an additional £184 per month. Over a third of apartments let in the last year have been new build.
